CHICAGO, April 25, 2024 – As JLL looks ahead to its annual celebration of Global Safety Week, following World Day for Safety and Health at work on April 28, JLL Work Dynamics is proud to announce that it has achieved the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certifications to ISO 14001 (environmental) and ISO 45001 (health and safety) globally. ISO certification is a highly regarded, globally recognized framework that verifies JLL’s global health, safety and environment (HSE) management system meets ISO’s standards.

ISO is the global organization responsible for developing and publishing international standards. ISO management system standards are designed to help organizations meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders while meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to a product or service.

The ISO 14001 certification provides a framework for organizations to design and implement an environmental management system, and continually improve environmental performance. The ISO 45001 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system and establishes a model for organizations to manage risks and improve OH&S performance. To achieve these third-party, independent certifications, Work Dynamics, which provides integrated facilities management services to clients, has demonstrated it manages health, safety and environmental programs at the highest level.

“By achieving these ISO certifications, we are demonstrating our commitment to driving health, safety and environmental efficiency to our clients and prospects alike,” said Neil Murray, CEO, JLL Work Dynamics. “These certifications assure clients that we are committed to high quality, safety and environmental efficiency as hallmarks of service and operational excellence. At JLL, we create a healthier and safer work environment where every individual can thrive and contribute to our shared success and a more sustainable future.”

This year’s theme for JLL’s annual Global Safety Week is “Safety for all, Safety always, One team S.A.F.E.R. together” to reinforce that safety applies to all employees, regardless of location or job function. During Global Safety Week, JLL celebrates coming together to be safer at work, at home and in the communities it serves. JLL’s “One team S.A.F.E.R. together” program promotes a positive culture of safety through effective HSE management, leadership engagement, data analysis, training, accountability and S.A.F.E.R. behaviors:

  • Speak about safety

  • Act safely always

  • Focus on standards

  • Engage others

  • Recognize excellence

“Being S.A.F.E.R. means truly putting people first,” said Tim Eldridge, Global Head of Health, Safety, Security & Environment at JLL. “During Global Safety Week, we celebrate and promote a positive safety culture through effective health, safety and environmental management, ownership, accountability and engagement behaviors. We are dedicated to improving and maintaining the highest standards in everything we do.”

Standardization of safety and cleanliness across JLL is paramount to ensuring healthy environments for JLL employees and organizations it serves.

Launched late last year, Cleaning Essentials has been implemented in the Americas, optimizing cleaning standards for client wellbeing and a more sustainable enterprise. JLL has teamed up with ISSA’s Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) Green Building program to provide third-party verification and certification to all janitorial suppliers. Cleaning Essentials enables JLL to deliver high-quality services to clients across industries.

Implementing CIMS-Green Building streamlines cleaning operations by following standardized best practices. This results in improved efficiency, reduced costs and optimized resource allocation. Additionally, it implements sustainable cleaning practices by incorporating strategies such as waste reduction and recycling programs, addressing the growing demand for environmentally responsible real estate solutions.

“Cleaning Essentials enhances collaboration across JLL teams and suppliers to improve janitorial standards, streamline processes and increase efficiency,” said John E. Kelley, Senior Director, Global SME – Janitorial, JLL Work Dynamics. “With a strong focus on safety, environment and sustainability, implementing one janitorial standard enhances the overall quality of cleaning services by guaranteeing consistency, simplifying service delivery, training and communication, ensuring a safe and sustainable work environment for our clients.”
